Produced in association with the Royal Geographical Society, Polar Explorations looks back at a heroic age, when explorers ventured forth to conquer nature's last bastions. It follows the most incredible voyages in history, from the initial navigation of the Northwest Passage to first flights over the Antarctic. There are impressive accounts of Shackleton's famed open-boat journey, Mawson's solo trek across the Polar Plateau, Ellsworth's transatlantic flight, and more. Lesser-known stories of cannibalism, madness, sabotage, and mutiny capture the thrill and danger of these amazing missions.
